Hi everyone, Sorry I've not been around for ages! I'm trying to work my way through to catch up on everyone's news - we're really broke so had to get rid of all non essential expenses - unfortunately Internet access comes under that heading. Well, mum has taken some major down turns over the last few weeks. She has become increasingly aggressive and withdrawn - a lot of the time she seems to be lost in her own little world - I hope it's a happier one for her than this one. We've had a lot of naked incidents which thankfully have been contained to just family situations although she has tried to get out of the house on several occasions. There have also been quite a few incidents where mum has wet herself - she'd just gone and got changed and dad's found out later when he's found her trousers. I thought this news would devestate me but to be honest I think I've been braced for it by coming on here. However, what I don't know is what we practically do about this. Are there special pads we need to use? To be honest I can't imagine how we'll get her to put them on but any advice on what we should do or ways to manage this would be great. Can it work in the same way as toilet training a child - if dad restricts her liquid so he can tell her to go at certain times? It's mum's 61st birthday in a week - I can't believe that this is how she'll be.
